Sifting Through Complex 2-D NMR Data

Data Analysis: Technique highlights chemical differences in sets of metabolite data
Department: Science & Technology, Government & Policy
Keywords: NMR, 2-D NMR, metabolomics, nematode, worm, chemical ecology

To understand how an organism's biochemistry relates to biological functions, such as reproduction or cell-to-cell communication, researchers struggle to make sense of complex chemical mixtures of metabolites. Now a study demonstrates a technique to analyze two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance data. With it, researchers have compared the metabolic profiles of two species of nematodes (Anal. Chem. DOI: 10.1021/ac102724x).
